Flensted Mobile Swallow 5
Flensted Mobile - Swallow 5
Design by Christian Flensted
"Flensted Mobiles are so designed that the elements are in constant motion while the entire mobile maintains a harmonic balance." Christian Flensted
Swallows are such a brilliant shape, they are just perfect in this mobile where they seem to be mid-aerobatics. Lie back beneath one of these mobiles and dream of freedom Flat-packed and very light, they would make an ideal gift for posting to any lover of birds or flight!
At The Scandinavian Shop we love to celebrate iconic Nordic brands and those traditional crafts which have made a successful transition into the modern world. Flensted Mobiles is a perfect example of such a brand. Although the craft of making mobiles is very much a Danish tradition, the decorative style we see today was born out of an original design made by Christian and Grethe Flensted for their first child in 1953. Their design was hugely popular and eventually grew into a full-time occupation for the couple who then devoted their entire life to the creation and production of Flensted Mobiles which have since found worldwide appeal. Sill very much a family business, new and original designs continue to join a fantastic collection which ranges from modern abstract designs and special commissions for museums all over the world, to the simple and colourful mobiles which have become such popular and much treasured gifts for children
"If you have a troubled mind, watch a mobile and unwind"
